“CATCH­ING IT EARLY CAN MAKE A BIG DIF­FER­ENCE TO BEAT­ING BOWEL CAN­CER.” Amira Ge­orgy, Se­nior Food Ed­i­tor

Bowel Can­cer Aus­tralia’s “Don’t Wait Un­til It’s Too Late” cam­paign launches on Fe­bru­ary 1. Bowel can­cer af­fects men and women, young and old, and is Aus­tralia’s sec­ond big­gest can­cer killer. How­ever, when de­tected early, 90% of cases can be treated suc­cess­fully and it is also one of the most pre­ventable can­cers. Bowel Can­cer Aus­tralia is re­mind­ing us that tim­ing can be ev­ery­thing. See beat­bow­el­cancer.org for screen­ing and other in­for­ma­tion (screen­ing op­tions in­clude an easy test to do at home and send away). There is also strong ev­i­dence that eat­ing fi­bre can help pre­vent bowel can­cer. Na­tional guide­lines rec­om­mend two serves of fruit and five of veg­eta­bles ev­ery day, as well as en­joy­ing a diet high in whole grains. Try our recipes, right, for tasty ways to eat more fi­bre.
